Vex in the Boat

Recommended Posts

I've heard a few of you talk about mounting your vex in the boat this spring. Are you mounting it on the back with the rest of the transducers? I was thinking of mounting it on my trolling motor, but the more I think about it, I may want to see its readings when I don't have the trolling motor down. Also I've heard about a different transducer for the vex, is that something made specifically for the boat?

ps... dropping the boat off to get it tuned up for open water this morning smile.gif

In my case I am mounting one on the trolling motor and one the rear of the boat. As for the trasducer, you will want to get the high speed kit. It comes with everything you need to mount it on the rear of your boat. I think that is where you will want it, because you will want to use it while you are using your big motor.ScottS

My new rig will have a lowrance on the bow with the transducer running thru my minn kota that has the new universal sonar. They are putting a vexilar bracket on a johnny ray swivel on my console. It will be set up with a high speed transducer off the rear off the boat. GOOD FISHING

I have the high speed transducer mounted on the transome....And I have my ice ducer in the boat for when I am fishing really finicky fish over the deeper water.

The ice ducer also works at trolling speeds, so I pretty much have a portable transducer.

That's how I've done it for years and it works good.

Well I use the Vex right now with just the Ice ducer in the boat. I simply place the puck on the floor back by my bilge(with a little water ofcourse) and I get perfect readings as if I had mounted a boat ducer. If I am jigging I just drop her over the side so I can see my lure and any fish coming off the bottom.

    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
